The Martorana Fruit or Almond Paste
Fruit in name but not in fact! In reality, the name Fruits Martorana derives from the noblewoman Eloisa Martorana who built the Benedictine monastery adjacent to the Church of Santa Maria dell’ammiraglio or Church of the Martorana in Palermo, where the nuns of the convent prepared them.
Indeed, these are typical Palermo sweets made with another must-have ingredient of our tradition: almond paste (or royal pasta)!
The traditional recipe involves a dough made with almond flour and sugar, then modeled giving life to a real reproduction of fruit and vegetables of our territory and finally colored using food colors! Generally, these sweets are consumed on the occasion of the Feast of the Dead (November 2).
Our high quality selection has hit the mark.
Finding the best Martorana fruit in the province of Palermo.
We have selected one of the best artisan workshops to make you taste the best Martorana fruit in Palermo.
From our personal experience, it has happened to us to taste Fruit Martorana from several well-known pâtisseries in Palermo. Although they had a high aesthetic quality, they did not meet our expectations in terms of taste; or too sweet, or too floury, or too aromatic, in practice we have highlighted a tendency to exaggerate in sugar (making them too sweet), in almond essence (making them too aromatic) and in flour (making them dry and floury).
The Martorana fruit that we propose here has been chosen mainly for its delicious taste, prepared by our master craftsmen respects the right balance between the ingredients of the traditional recipe that make it deliciously unique.
